A - Crystal clear amber in color. A tight knit cream colored head that holds up very well. Thick sheets of lacing with a thick ceiling of micro-bubbles. A mix of full sheets and spiderweb patterns of lacing.
S - Sweet malt with a touch of toasted cereal grain. Floral honey, brown sugar, grassy hops.
T - Saaz hops hits right away along with a sweet malt with honey and flowers in the background. Dusty lager yeast marries with the grassy hops and create a solid edge to balance out the sweet malt. Finishes sweet before quickly turning dry.
M - Heavy medium body, great flowy carbonation.
Great looking beer. Just what you’d expect from a Czech Marzen. Great malt profile with plenty of noble hops to balance it out. Very satisfying.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Clear, amber coloured, small lacing head, quickly diminishing to a small foamy layer; the aroma is a mix of dark sweet malt and toasted malt and an aromatic bitterness; moderate to strong sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied; first toasted malty, then bitter-sweet lingering finish. An interesting brew, that combines quite well the qualties of a Dunkel and a Bohemian Pils (Polotmavy means "half-dark"). Nice....

No idea where I tasted this or how or with whom but my notes read, ’..rich buttery vanilla malt and raisiny fruit. Raisin aroma. Beautiful bronze ringed with froth..’. Sounds alright.
